THONEH Introduces Malaysia’s First YAG Laser Vitreolysis – A Non-Invasive Procedure To Treat Floaters”

THONEH Press Conference

Dr Pall Singh & Dr Sarbjit Singh

The Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital (THONEH) proudly introduces Malaysia’s first YAG Laser Vitreolysis to its line-up of modern eye-care equipment. The YAG Laser allows ophthalmologists to perform treatment of the anterior and posterior segments of the eye; it is designed to treat floaters – small pieces of debris that float in the eye’s vitreous humour, causing shadows that float across the field of vision. I was proud to be part of the press conference held on January 19, 2016 at the launch of this procedure.

Press Release

(issued by Pixarus Communications Sdn Bhd on behalf of The Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital)

Petaling Jaya, 19th January 2016: The Tun Hussein Onn National Eye Hospital (THONEH) became the first organisation in Malaysia to own the YAG Laser Vitreolysis – a specialised equipment that uses nanosecond pulses of laser light to vaporize vitreous opacities and sever vitreous strands, converting these molecules into a gas in a minimally invasive manner. Floaters are symptoms of degenerative vitreous syndrome. This can happen as the vitreous humour, which is normally perfectly transparent, degenerates over time, losing its form. Sometimes, collagen fibres bind together, forming opaque clumps and knots, which cast shadows on the retina, leading to vision troubled by what looks like spots, strings and cobwebs; which are known as floaters.
